Much can happen between now and the end of the season that will ultimately impact what the Atlanta Braves do this offseason.
Injuries and player performances over the next few months will play a factor in how the Braves attack free agency.
However, we do have a basic blueprint of what the Braves will be facing.
Brian McCann, Tim Hudson, Paul Maholm and Eric O'Flaherty will all be free agents freeing up about $30 million in payroll space.
We also know that Jason Heyward, B.J. Upton, Justin Upton, Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons won't be going anywhere.
The Braves will likely use some of their payroll flexibility to work on contract extensions for Freddie Freeman, Craig Kimbrel and Mike Minor.
They will have a very big decision to make in regards to Hudson if he chooses to pitch in 2014.
With that said, here's a very early look at some potential free-agent targets for the Braves in the upcoming offseason.
